Researchers have succeeded in developing a new catalyst that burns amonia (NH3) at a low temperature and produces N2. The results are expected to contribute to climate change countermeasures and increased renewable energy use.
The redox flow battery might be a key component in the future power grids: It can be scaled as desired, recycled, and it ensures stable energy storage. Moreover, no scarce resources are needed for its production.
A new earth modeling system unveiled today will have weather-scale resolution and use advanced computers to simulate aspects of Earth's variability and anticipate decadal changes that will critically impact the U.S. energy sector in coming years.
A novel approach has the potential to increase wind power generation significantly with a consequent increase in revenue. Numerical simulations indicate potential increases of up to six to seven percent.
